So……um…..I didn’t get around to posting the Easter ordering info early this week like I had planned- sorry ‘bout that. The best excuse I have is “I wanted to spend more time with my kids because I’ve been promising to take them out for two months and keep bumping them to take meetings and stuff, so if we lose a couple of orders so we can go to the museum, that’s just going to have to happen”. I think that’s pretty solid. And so you know, we had an AWESOME time at the Staten Island Children’s Museum. We played dinosaurs, deep-sea explorers, and I got to perform my one-woman musical “Goldilocks: Of Courage, Pride and Porridge” in the theater to a screaming audience of three preschoolers. At the beginning of the second act, they rushed the stage, tackled me, and put apple chips in my hair. I think that means they liked it.
If you need cupcakes for Easter, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make it happen. I’ll get the ordering page up by next week, I swear.
Onto more cupcake related things, it’s a NEW LOCATION DAY! WOOHOO! Starting today we are in NoLita Mart at 156 Mott. Also starting today, this native New Yorker and proud Italian-American doesn’t hate herself so much when saying “NoLita”!
One of the things I love about NoLita Mart is that it’s a true mom-and-pop, just like us. We worked with them quite a bit when we did Park Here back in January, and they’re just totally spectacular people. Anyone else who’s dumb enough to run a business with their spouse while simultaneously raising children really deserves your support, because pity is just not going to pay the bills. Aside from pulling off that epic juggling act, they have a growler service, they pour one DAMN fine cup of coffee, and their shop is flawlessly curated (hey, they’re carrying us, right?),
Today is also the LAST DAY you can get our super-seasonal flavor Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. I’m a big fan of how the oat cake we developed turned out, so I’m positive you’ll be seeing that again very soon (suggestions on how we should use it? Let us know on our Facebook page). Make sure you seek this one out before it heads back into the vault until next spring!
